Description

Course information

Covering a broad range of topics, from cell and plant life to ecology and food production, the Biology IGCSE course is a popular choice for students that require a basic level of biological understanding before studying the topic at A level.

The course itself is made up of five modules.

  • Module 1: Cells and Organisms
  • Module 2: Plant and Animal Physiology A
  • Module 3: Plant and Animal Physiology B
  • Module 4: Inheritance
  • Module 5: Ecology and Food Production

There are 23 lessons and 13 tutor-marked assessments, two of which are mock examinations. Each lesson will challenge the student, helping them to achieve the targets set throughout each module. This, in turn, will prepare them for future examinations. A more comprehensive summary can be found in the course introduction.

Practical Work

Throughout the course, there will be a mixture of both theoretical and practical science,

The practical work described at various places in this course is to help to develop your skills for the practical-based components of the theory exams. You should try to carry out this work yourself; if you can undertake some of it at home, this will be a great help.

Three of the lessons are devoted to the development of practical skills

The exam will include written questions on practical based study. There is no practical examination.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
